As your lender is Kent Reliance your lawyer must follow the conveyancing requirements contained in Section 2 of UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook for Kent Reliance. The Council of Mortgage Lenders’ Handbook contains minimum conditions for solar panel roof-space leases, and solicitors are required to report to Kent Reliance where a lease fails to comply with these requirements. The specifications relate to the installation of panels on properties in England and Wales and is not isolated to Wokingham.
